This forge is inexpensive (less than $200 of materials) and extremely versatile. I have used it quite a bit and have very pleased with results. This video is intended to give you the big picture / concept so you can build a version of it for yourself. I have included details about materials below - but please understand that every forge is different and you will need to adapt this concept to fit your burner, bricks, fuels system, etc. If you are the type of person who is ambitious enough to build a forge I'm sure you will be able to figure this out!
MATERIALS I USED:
Fire Brick http://bit.ly/2Caj9ci
Propane Burner https://ebay.to/2TAgJh9
2x2x1/8 Angle Iron - Local Metal Yard
3/16 x 1 1/4 Flat Bar - Local Metal Yard
7/16 All Thread with Nuts and Washers https://amzn.to/2UrvJLE
CUTS AND OTHER DETAILS:
All holes are drilled 1/2" diameter
2x2x1/8 ANGLE IRON CUTS:
2 pcs @ 24" (holes at 1", 13", 23"... one left one right)
4 pcs @ 9" (no holes) - if you want the hearth make 2 of these 18-1/2"
3/16" x 1-1/4" FLAT BAR CUTS:
2pcs @ 11-1/2" (holes at 5/8" , 10-3/4")
ALL THREAD CUTS:
4 pcs @ 12" and 2- 7/16" x 1" bolts (If you are building with the plate top and hearth you will need to make these longer!)
Having a plate on top is extremely useful and I highly recommend it. Drill the holes in your plate to accept the all thread.
Yeah, I know these instructions are a little rough - but you will get it!
